  “Pallas.—See yonder souls set far within the shade,
              Who in Elysian bowers the blessèd seats do keep,
          That for their living good now semi-gods are made,
              And went away from earth, as if but tamed with sleep.
        These we must join to wake; for these are of the strain
        That Justice dare defend, and will the Age sustain.”
